State Aid Law
State aid law prevents the granting of illegal aid and provides for recovery in the event of such aid having been granted.
We are used to grappling with the complexities of the EU state aid regime in order to assist clients to avoid or to mitigate risks in this area.
Our experience includes:
- Advising an energy company on state aid implications of an acquisition
- Advising an administrator on grant in aid funding and implications of a company’s insolvency
- Advising local authorities on state aid rules
- Providing training to local authorities on the rules associated with their funding initiatives
